I’m having a love affair with smoothie bowls. Cute as a bento box, pretty as a picture. It’s so easy to whip up a thick smoothie and top it with fruit.
Looking for a simple way to kick that morning coffee? Make a smoothie bowl.
Looking to kick the cereal habit? Make a Smoothie bowl.
Looking to reinvigorate your inner artist? Smoothie bowls. Plus this.
Some smoothie bowls are complicated and involved. But, they don’t have to be. You don’t need layers of rainbow fruit. You don’t need a full hour of slicing. Done right, smoothie bowls can be quick and simple. An easy way to get more fiber, vitamins, and micronutrients into your day. A delicious way to children into enjoying fresh fruit, chia, and other highly nutritious real foods.
TRICKS & TIPS FOR QUICK SMOOTHIE BOWL MAKING:
- Buy frozen berries in bulk. Costco makes this simple and budget-friendly.
- Preportion into ziptop baggies. It’s easy to grab premeasured bags and dump them into the blender.
- Prepare tomorrow’s smoothie today. Out of preportioned bags? Prep a few while you prep your morning smoothie bowl.
- Slice while the smoothie blends. Prep your topping fruit, and keep it simple.
- Select simple recipes. Keep it easy, don’t spend your entire morning on overly complex ideas
Today’s recipe is wonderful. Full of blueberries and firmed up with chia seeds, it’s like a sweet bowl of berry oatmeal. I sliced the center from my strawberries, then cut them in half to make hearts. Toddlers, tweens, and teens were invited to decorate their own bowl of blueberries. They loved it.
As much an art project as a meal. As surprising as a sunrise in the morning. Make a smoothie bowl, and make a little morning love.
